Pierre-Emile Højbjerg and Jan Bednarek both celebrated big wins with their countries in EURO 2020 qualifying on Monday night.

Saints captain Højbjerg, fresh from scoring in Friday's 1-1 draw with Ireland, played the full game for Denmark as they crushed Georgia 5-1 at home.

There was no goal for him this time, but it was another impressive display from the midfielder, who helped dominate the game.

The win was Denmark's first of their qualification campaign, moving them up to second in Group D, with five points from their opening three games.

Elsewhere, Bednarek also helped Poland to a thumping win at home, as they thrashed Israel 4-0, in Warsaw.

The Saints defender once again played the entire 90 minutes, a matter of days on from helping his country to another clean sheet, in the 1-0 win away to North Macedonia.

The result means Poland have kept their perfect start to qualifying intact, with four victories from four, and they are already five points clear of Israel, who are second.

Another Saint also celebrated a win on Monday, although Mohamed Elyounoussi finished as an unused substitute in Norway's 2-0 win away to Faroe Islands.

The victory was their first of qualifying, taking them to five points from four games and putting them fourth in Group F as it stands.
